(b) A claim by a buyer, lessee, or debtor against a creditor for an excess charge, other violation of this act, or civil penalty, or a claim against a buyer, lessee, or debtor for default or breach of a duty imposed by this act, if disputed in good faith, may be settled by agreement.
(c) A claim, whether or not disputed, against a buyer, lessee, or debtor may be settled for less value than the amount claimed.
